Every NBA team has one player that they can’t play without.

Take the Washington Wizards.

The one player they can ill-afford to lose for any length of time is point guard John Wall.

The 24-year-old, 2-time All-Star is out indefinitely as his team is in a 1-1 dogfight with the Atlanta Hawks in the NBA’s other Eastern Conference semifinal matchup.

Wall has five nondisplaced fractures in his left wrist and hand.

The University of Kentucky product was hurt in Game 1 against the Hawks.

Game 3 is on Sunday at Washington and head coach Randy Wittman says the team is prepared to go ahead without Wall.

Washington misses much without the 6’4, 195-pounder. Wall is known for his blazing speed and explosive athleticism. Along with his ability to get to the rim using his speed, Wall also has a tremendous ability to pass the ball.

There was a time when everybody said the Cleveland Cavaliers could not win without All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving.

That statement has been proven wrong as peaking Cavs have won four of the past five games without Irving.

In the meantime, other players are stepping up. Dion Waiters, Luol Deng, Jarrett Jack, Tristan Thompson and Spencer Hawes have chipped in to lead the young team.

On Sunday afternoon, Cleveland dominated the East’s best team, the Indiana Pacers, 90-76.

Walters scored 19 points, Deng knocked down 15 and Thompson controlled the boards with 16 rebounds to help in chasing down the Atlanta Hawks for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Cavs, who are 14-12 since February 5, might be getting Irving back into action this week as they play at Orlando on Wednesday, at  Atlanta on Friday and host Charlotte on Saturday. The Hawks are injured and sputtering having lost six in a row.

Cleveland ended a nine-game losing streak to the Pacers.

Another former Buckeyes’ basketball player, David Lighty, a teammate of Thomas’ at OSU, played for the same team last year and was the MVP.

Lighty has moved on, as he did not re-sign with JSF Nanterre. The Cleveland, Ohio native has accepted an invitation from the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks to attend training camp and compete for a roster spot.

Nanterre, will not only defend its French title this coming season, but will also play against some strong competition in Europe’s Euroleague.
